5:37 pm
clandestine activities were on the agenda. some of those presents like yahoo microsoft and google want us spying scaled back. the meeting comes just a day after a washington court ruled that mass government espionage is most likely unconstitutional data protection advocates say it's due process were applied then it's clear that the nsa is breaking us lots yes they really want to be open they would allow these programs. the challenge to open in federal court. you know for the past six years the government has been putting up every roadblock so that these programs can be a challenge in the regular court heard that we use everyday in this country instead. it's been done behind closed doors in the secret physic or where only the government gets to make an argument. edwards noted still hiding in russia while the midst of rolling and sent the nsa secret activities could not withstand exposure to scrutiny. that may happen first outside the u s intelligence officials in

5:40 pm
think and legal analysts is that this will go as far as the supreme court. judge leon ruled that the government has failed to demonstrate to collecting the information had helped to head off any attacks to know how our american taxpayers responding to not only a failed program but the waste of billions of dollars. we certainly formulating what many americans are increasingly increasingly thinking about about this although it's hard to say what americans really think about this this balance between security and privacy it seems to be tipping a little that but a couple weeks back. there was that was sort of split half of americans thought that was necessary the other half thought that was going too far but he certainly all of this is not helping the nsa is cos i think that it's safe to say max old mum washington max's ever thanks very much chill the dough mama's program lies in tunisia three years since the tipping point moment that began the arabs

5:44 pm
expanded financial help to the self employed to include all sectors. instead of just a select few to what we've done this to make it easier for young graduates to get access to financial support it in the human head. but with the everyday that passes zachary is what it is dwindling but he'll get the benefit from the revolution three years ago. he is he's been visiting the job center. we don't lock job seekers in chain is coming need to get advice and apply for financial support from the government's the curse of the msm when the government as all the money confiscated from the members of the old regime i mean who wouldn't. on top of the task he receives foreign aid. where does it all go home this evening we don't see any of it. she then takes much too long just to get a better financial health we still have to fight to survive with chicken manure

5:47 pm
moscow ukraine's president came to the kremlin for support and he got it in spades. russian president arriving at switching made a point of emphasizing the long standing ties between the two countries. steel grade russia and ukraine as strategic partners not just in words but also in deeds we you know i said by many centuries of friendship and by having lived together for a long time in the same country continue to do it part of tuesday's deal will see russia temporarily lower gas prices for the ukraine and when viktor yanukovich as governments around eleven billion euros. she and is facing huge budget shortfall that desperately needs the money especially after bailout talks with the international monetary fund and the european union broke down in november. this view is that this is the shift in relations has angered pro western troops in ts who immediately denounced the new deal with russia while present yanukovich was in moscow. opposition leader
5:48 pm
of the time the cats go repeated calls for him to step down. his name or two and a uv and we know that there is only one solution to these political crisis cities to hold snap parliamentary elections. snap elections are a fair way to go on it's an opportunity for the people to choose directly which causes they support for the country were. jailed opposition leader yulia tymoshenko has urged her countrymen to reject closer relations with moscow. so far kiev has not joined in russia's customs union. but that's only a small consolation to the anti moscow protesters. for more of the story we're joined now by susan stewart she's in eastern europe analysts that the german institute for international and security welcome to the show personal guilt will this can be enough to sort out ukraine's financial books but certainly a good short term solution for yemen
5:49 pm
called it that basically he and his cronies have created very dire economic straits for the country and needs to find a way out of that. and i think this will possibly even tide him over and tell the presidential elections currently scheduled for march two thousand fifteen mm so what's the quid pro quo then we had to customs union mentioned in that report the russian would like ukraine to join the size of insisting they didn't talk about that mosque. they may or may not have talked about it but i am certain that they have talked about it in the past and it is certainly the case that cooking one night get up on his idea of me getting ukraine to join the customs union so i think of something that we absolutely cannot rule out happening in the future the key to haiti because he's now in a cool beach is now more dependent on russia than before. his means ukraine has effectively in the russian word that right now. back to ukraine. the likely scale opposition leader one of the top rate is going to steal of the trail once again
5:50 pm
demanding new elections for what happens. well right now to stand out. we have that protesters on the square and we had to pull that trying to stay in power at practically no matter what means he's going to use a show. i think we still have to wait and see. and wouldn't that the eu that means you'd expect to be that way ukraine has been talking to the finance at least about the possibility of dancing some assistance and the eu has also been offering a few hundred million to expect that these kind of. these organizations to time. ross has often given to some of the deal will see you cry. no i didn't exactly that is what the us than trying to avoid and that it seems that ousted the imf is not willing to significantly reduce the conditions that it imposed on ukraine. so far so i don't think we're going to see it getting more and accents but i do think that any eu doesn't want to keep the door open for continuing its relationship with ukraine in some form. this is a steward of the germans to
